One of the best beaches I have visited in the Philippines, period. Not much by the way of services... a lot of fishing boats and local people there. The water is crystal clear and there is zero garbage!

Paliton Beach is known to be as Little Boracay in Siquijor. The beach is beautiful. White sand. Soft sand. Picturesque. Post card pictures. Accessible from the centre.

lovely beach with overhanging palm trees and white sand. At times you are the only ones on this beach although easter time it gets really busy. Still worth a visit and the marine sanctuary is only a ten minute swim.

The strand of perfect white sand is very small. Most of the beach is very dirty since boats can make land here. The available trash cans are overflowing and help ruin the experience. To make things worse a recent typhoon has destroyed most of the...More

I wasn't able to dip in the water or stayed under the sun as I was too tired to swim. I just wanted to sit and sleep while waiting for the sunset. Too bad, the clouds blocked the sunset, but nevertheless, I enjoyed staying there...More
